Nightshade ~ A Finished Quilt

I’m back with my finished Halloween quilt! This turned out to be a fun quilt to put together and even though it’s not October yet, I’ve already set it out in the family room.

I mentioned in my last post that I used my Prism pattern for this quilt. I did shrink the blocks down a bit…not sure why – ha! That’s what happens when I finish a quilt a year after I start it. It probably has something to do with the limited amount of fabric I had (only fat quarters of the Nightshade prints and only fat 1/8ths of the Oakshott cottons). These blocks ended up 6″ finished. The quilt measures about 48″ x 54″.

I quilted with a meandering free motion design. I did a pretty wide spaced meandering, hoping it will wash up a bit less stiff than a tighter quilting pattern.

The backing is two of my favorite prints from the Nightshade line. The binding is the left over from one of the backing prints.

Overall I think this is a great quilt for Halloween without screaming “Orange and Black!”

    This is gorgeous. I love how from a distance it just looks like a beautifully coloured set of fabrics, but once you get up close you can completely see the Halloween theme. You could probably get away with using it year round. 😉

    This is a fab Hallowe’en quilt Faith – and you’re right, it is a nice change from orange & black (even though I like those too!). I am a big fan of purple & green. The Oakshotts work perfectly with this line x

    Great quilt and that tree makes a beautiful prop for its display! Now do my eyes deceive me or am I seeing some spider webs in the root system of that tree?!

      Good eye! There were spider webs on the roots of the tree! I was torn because I thought they were perfect for my spooky quilt, but also didn’t want to get them ON the actual quilt. ha 🙂
